We seem to be having a blue light special this weekend on Dementia. As I sit there in my my hall chair positioned to watch 3 or 4 especially active demented patients the yells and cussing from our more verbal one drift down the hall. My tension headaches danced around behind my eyes like little demons from hell.
What causes dementia? What can I do to prevent dementia,? I ponder. Some causes have answers and preventive measures, but other causes remain unknown and unpreventable. Which will I get. Will mine be from late nights not sleeping and repeating the same reassuring sentence over and over again? When I am 89 will I be laying in my hospital bed kicking my covers off and saying over and over.....its alright,hush, try to rest and not worry. I will be here. There is nothing to be frightened of. Lets get back in bed now.
So that is how my weekend is going so far. One last night to go. One more night...one more night......one more night.
